I purchased a new light assembly (#6621JK2003B), I read a question submitted by Teri. I have the same problem, an extra round control of some type, and a ground type wire (green and yellow). Your answer was a "Main Control Board" that does not make sense to me, or did you mean the pcb assembly display board. If it is the Main Control, where is it, I do not see it within the area of the light assembly. Confused in Florida..thanks, Greg
The light socket now comes with a bimetal which is the round control that you referred to. This bimetal will attach to the reflector assembly by using a 8/32 pan head screw that is no more than a 1/4" long. The ground wire (Green/Yellow) will attach to a tab that is on the reflector assembly. The main control board would need to be replaced due to an issue of the lights staying on and causing the light area to overheat. The part number required for the main control is 6871JB1423N and is located on the back of the unit behind a square panel.
I have a LG refrigerator, model # lfx25950sw. The concern is (a) removing the light bulb lens plate without breaking mount clips(don't know if they are on the length or width sides). (b) when replacing the doors (left & right) light switches, will there be a reasonable way to remove & replace them?
To remove the light lens cover you will use a small flat blade screwdriver at the front of the cover. Go in between the cover and the casing on the left and right side and push inward and pull down. For the light switches, you will remove the hinge cover and take the switch out of the hinge cover and install the new one. There is no special ways to do this.
We previously ordered the door buttons because our refridgerator light would not go on. We replaced them, the lights still don't work. We ordered the light socket assembly which was recommended for our refridgerator, but on receiving it, it looks different from the one my husband pulled out of the fridge. The original one has the sockets, a blue and purple wire and a white plug. The one we received has a round metal thing with a purple and pink wire attached, and also an extra green and yellow wire. Is this something new, or is the one recommended on your website maybe not accurate? If it is something new that should be attached, are there instructions on how to do this? If so, could you email them to me? If this isn't correct we'll need to return this one.
Answer Hello Terri. The light socket assembly is correct and you would need to screw the round disc, which is a thermostat to keep the lights from staying on, to the reflector assembly. This repair will also require a new main control board 6871JB1423N to correct the issue of the lights staying on or not coming on.
Just purchased light socket ass. The thermostat will have 2 ears.. Will screw to mounted them come with the kit?
Answer Hello Rose! No, the manufacturer does not offer screws in the light socket assembly kit 6621JK2003B. The screws that you can use would just be a Phillips 8/32 pan head and only needs to be 1/4" long at the most.
I can't find any slots to mount the thermostat into. What now?
Answer Hello Wayne. We will need your email address to send you the instructions. Thank you.
The original lamp socket assembly did not include a safety thermostat. The one that I got has thermostat and a green wire to be connected, however, these is no place to connect the green wire or mount the safety thermostat. Can I get the original lamp socket assembly that has no thermostat? If not , how the new one can be installed?
Answer Hi Habib. This is an upgraded factory part replacement you have. It is modified with the thermostat for safety and will open the circuit before the light bulbs sockets will melt. Hi Mark. The green wire connects to the metal light mount bracket. There is a corner tab that will have a place where you can connect the green wire. The "round" thing is a thermostat . It is mounted with the "ears" so it will be placed against the cabinet so it can monitor exact cabinet temperatures. There will be opning slots where the sensor mount tab's slide and lock into to be secure. Hope this helps. Thank you.
